    Picture taken in July, 2012. Now a glass company.

    In 1937, Lester Bevan was a salesman for Davis-Child Oldsmobile. In 1947, he became an owner of Bevan Motor Company at 108-110 West 1st Street. In 1969, Bevan Motor Co. is listed as an American Motors and Mercedes-Benz dealer. This picture is of 108 W. 1st, the building at 110 W. 1st was torn down to make the parking lot.

    I just read most of the previous pages and stand corrected. H.G. Wonderlin was in Decatur, not Bloomington, IL. Homer Wonderlin became a Lincoln-Mercury dealer and my father bought a new '65 Mercury Montclair from him.

    CHAMPAIGN-URBANA, IL
    My father's dealership, C. L. Cochrun&Son ca.1930 thru 1956 (also Packard in '56 and American Bantam in late 30's)
    H.E. Harkins & Co, 1957-58
    Dana Hudelson, Inc. late 50's - early 60's

    In Bloomington, IL it was H. G. Wonderlin. No, it wasn't. See my correction a few items below.

    While we answered the phone "Cochrun Studebaker" my dad said the Studebaker Corp didn't like the name "Studebaker" used in the dealership name - in case the dealership went bust. Ironic!

    I have visited the LOC and Google's Archives and probably have exhausted those resources. There are almost 5000 names listed on my site and I keep finding more. "Google is your friend" or at least was. They've decided to not continue with their digital Archive of books, etc and that's a big setback, but more names continue to surface with what's available. The real mother lode is in the Digital newspaper archives (http://newspaperarchive.com/) but they and others ( NYTimes) want a stately sum just to browse and it's not worth it...

    Baker had a Studebaker -Plymouth dealership on West main Street In Hillsboro,Ohio My dad bought a 64 Daytona 4 Dr. new and then A 65 Fury 4dr. from him in the day. Never did ask why the short ownership of the Studebaker . He was a Rural mail carrier.

    oops.

    Sorry. My mistake! The library of Congress website is loc.gov Not loc.org as I earlier said.
